Prize from Frederiksberg Municipality to the new CPSC building

The Copenhagen Plant Science Centre building was awarded for beautifully completed construction by Frederiksberg Municipality. The mayor presented the prize at the Town Hall on 4 October.

Together the Danish Building and Property Agency, the architect and the University of Copenhagen received the award from the mayor of Frederiksberg Municipality Jørgen Glenthøj. The argument for the prize reads among other things: “The building is shaped on the basis of a general theme that mimics the shapes found in organic cells. This cell motif creates a very specific reference to the center’s research field within the wonderful world of life sciences.”

Mayor Jørgen Glenthøj hands over a plaque and diplomas to representatives from the Danish Building and Property Agency, the architect and the University of Copenhagen, Faculty of SCIENCE.

It was also stressed that the former closed wall to the university along Bülowsvej has now been opened up and been replaced by an inviting gesture in the form of the new building and its entrance area.

The award ceremony was held on 4 October in the Town Hall. Three other building projects were also rewarded. Frederiksberg Municipality has been handing out building awards since 1902 to Good and Beautiful buildings.

Four prizes were handed out at the award ceremony on 4 October in the Town Wall of Frederiksberg Municipality.

The Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences including the researchers at Copenhagen Plant Science Centre are proud that the building not only houses world class research but also contributes to beautify Frederiksberg Municipality.
